Wrinkle reducing injections (Such as BOTOX® )
Wrinkle reducing injections are one of the best known and most popular non-surgical treatments for treating lines and wrinkles caused by smiling, laughing and frowning. Wrinkle reducing injections are used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and forehead lines on the face. It is the most common rejuvenating and anti ageing treatment. Alice will provide a consultation and any treatments and top-ups using the latest techniques in this ever changing area. Wrinkle reducing injections are also used for migraines.
Replacing lost volume (Such as lip fillers)
Dermal fillers will give you immediate and visible results, taking years off your face, and leaving your skin smoother and more supple. Dermal fillers ‘fill lines’ and restore volume in your face to give a more youthful appearance. Common areas to treat are lips, cheeks and around the lower jaw.
Completing careful research prior to having any cosmetic treatment is vital. You need knowledge about the treatments, understand the risks and have confidence that your chosen professional is going to provide the best treatments.

Dermal fillers – Frequently Asked Questions
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that occurs naturally in the human body and is central to regulating cell growth and renewal. HA has impact on number of functions in the body, some of which are to bind water, lubricate the movable parts of the body such as muscles and joints and to maintain the elasticity of the skin.
Due to the properties of hyaluronic acid, once injected an instant volumizing effect can be seen, giving volume to the skin and longer term binding with water increasing hydration. Unwanted folds and wrinkles can be “plumped up” to reduce their appearance, resulting in a smoother, more youthful looking skin.
Dermal filler injections provide an effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months. Dermal filler injections can give natural looking results that do not affect facial expression. As your face changes over time, dermal fillers allow you to control you looks subtly as you age.
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the area treated, individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. Generally the effects can last between 6-12 months.
Some clients may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. The lips are extremely sensitive and as such cause most discomfort. Ranges of dermal fillers containing local anaesthetic are available which ease any discomfort.
Alice uses topical anaesthetic to ease any discomfort.
Product related reactions are rare. There are some injection related reactions which may occur after any injection including redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site.
After lip enhancement, some swelling is likely for a short period.
